Welcome to Gary's Online Astronomy Journal.
Thank you for dropping by. I am a semi retired minister and new to Astronomy. My observation equipment is limited to binoculars. I live in central Florida and usually do not have "dark" skies for observation. This is all relatively new to me so any suggestions / corrections would be most appreciated. Welcome & thank you.
I have numerous hobbies but Astronomy is top on the list. I am a licensed Ham radio operator, I enjoy golfing and fishing.
Currently I minister to a local congregation in the community where I live. We started 2 years ago with 19 people and now our services run around 160.
I am married and my wife is a retired school teacher. I have 3 children but only one is still alive.
Favorite Sky Object
I am currently searching out the Messier objects and hope to find 100 of them with my binoculars.
Experience: < 1 Year
Astrophotography: No, I do not take pictures through my telescope

Comments about where I live
The climate where I live is wonderful but the skies are light polluted.
